oxyk :: Wordpress, xhtml, php/mysql/ajax developer
instead of putting here some generic information about myself that you can find out of my test results, feedback and profile, i'd like to share a bit different information. I hope it will help you to determine if i'm the right candidate for your coding job.
I have spent last 6 years as a fulltime freelancer. You know, it's just 6 years, but now, when i look back, i feel like my whole life changed. I always wanted to push limits and to provide top notch solutions, i wanted to be proud of myself at the end of the day. I spend lots of time doing nothing like people would say, but actually i use this time to think on structure, features of the project. I always want to create best solution, will it be just slideshow that uses just 1 line of code, but works like any other big slideshow, or clone of famous one-of-a-kind plugin w/o copyright infringements and better approach in features.
Because i need to spend lots of time thinking and writing that complex things in my editor, i'm not very talkative on IM's and i have no skype. However I would gladly communicate via odesk app chat during work.
I hate repetitive jobs like data entry and such. If i can't automate it, i'll never agree to work on it. Also if i'll promise to deliver something, i'll deliver. Because when i look at the project reqs my mind automatically finds possible ways to make it work. It's a privilege of 6 years experience. Sometimes I might be late with my delivery, nobody's perfect, but most important thing for me is to provide a solution I can be proud of.
You know, from my experience, if a project is very urgent and i'm on it to deliver it just in 30 minutes, there's a big risk something gonna happen to prevent it (thanks to Murphy to clearing that out), please avoid such urgency if possible, i'm very reluctant to provide such rapid solutions, because both of us will be nervous about the result and i have my rating which i don't want to spoil just because someone needed that work done yesterday.
What i actually can do. All about wordpress (including custom plugins of any complexity), php, jquery, coding layouts and solving puzzles. I'm capable to create a site from scratch or fix broken features, and much more, just ask :)
